1. At vertex, x=6/10=0.6

Try
f(-1)=-2
f(0)=9
f(2)=-1
So -1 and +2 could be approximate zeroes of f(x).

The local zoo has two water tanks for the elephant exhibit that are leaking One water tank contains 12 gal of water and is leaking at a constant rate of 3 gal/h. The second water tank contains 8 gal of water and is leaking at a constant rate of 5 gal/h. When will the two tanks have the same amount of water? Explain. Let x = the number of hours the tanks are filling and let y = the number of gallons in the tank.
